Cam specs for Vulcan 1500 and 1600

Okay everyone wants to know the hottest cams for 1500 or 1600 Vulcan. All of these cams are interchangeable between models. The early 1500 Meanstreak is the highest horsepower cam. Also keep in mind that the Meanstreak has the lowest gearing too. I was surprised the BUBF cams were so far down the list. Those were the original hop-up cam for a 1500 Classic. I have highlighted the similar numbers between the cams.


  1. For years Guy was pushing the 1500 Streak heads/cams over the A cams. The A's were easy to obtain there for a while and, as you can see, were hotter than the Classic cams.

  2. Yes, I had always heard MS or BUBF, but I had see what was what. I was surprised were everything fell out. The 1500 MS will be the toughest to find used given production numbers. It should relative easy to find 1600 or 1500FI stuff.

  3. does anyone know the part numbers for 1500 meanstreak cams, cheers, mick.

    1. According to the fiche for 2003 1500 MS -> 12044-1478 Front and 12044-1479 Rear.
